 ADVANCING THE ART AND SCIENCE OF DENTISTRY

  

ALL CERAMIC VENEERS & CROWNS

An approach to improved facial and tooth appearance is with thin porcelain cosmetic veneers and all ceramic crowns. This would be indicated in cases where extensive wear or existing tooth position and/or fillings would not be improved by tooth bleaching. Many times there might be rotations or defects that create shadows with lack of harmony.  These can be corrected by veneering those teeth with porcelain veneers to create a more symmetrical arrangement. Whenever veneering is done, designing the final shapes of the teeth with computer and laboratory planning, prior to treatment is important.  All ceramic crowns are indicated when veneers can not be done and esthetic results are needed.  The tooth preparation is more technically demanding than conventional porcelain fused to metal crowns as is the cementation procedure.
